After a screen capture, I then need to decrease the size of the graphic I just captured. This is where I have problems: when I decrease the size of the graphic, the whole graphic loses clarity. How can I kept
the same quality when decreasing the size of the captured object?
The terminology may not be appropriated bu I hope you understand what I mean.

Thanls in advance for your help.

I assume that you're using the "Resample" command in Paint Shop Pro or a similar command in Photoshop? If so, you're going to lose some quality no matter what. Here's how to reduce the quality loss after you resample the image:

In Paint Shop Pro, go to the Image Menu and select Normal Filters. Experiment with Sharpen, Sharpen More, and Unsharpen (this does not actually mean the opposite of Sharpen--it's an old photographic term that carried over). Sharpen and Sharpen more will perform an automatic sharpening, while Unsharpen gives you control over the degree of sharpening, and it gives you a preview window.

In PhotoShop, go to Filers, Sharpen, and experiment with Sharpen, Sharpen More, Sharpen Edges, and Unsharp Mask. Once again, the first three will perform an automatic action, whereas Unsharp Mask will give you full control and a preview window.
